How good is a used Prius?
The typical life of a hybrid car battery is about 10 years, and many last nearly the life of the car. Just like a cordless tool, as long as the hybrid battery is not abused and the charging system operates properly the battery should have a few more years left in it. Toyota in the last few years reduced the price of its replacement battery pack and there are several websites that offer low cost solutions to replacing the battery in a Prius.
